A statement from the organisers read thus

“Strategies for Result-Driven Change management

Anticipating to and responding to change. Nothing can be more critical to organisational success in this era of globalisation and socio-economic development. Given rapid economic, commerce and social developments in sub-Saharan Africa over the past few years, this is particularly true for African organisations. Organisations operating in Africa must evolve in line with increasing investor interest, an expanding middle class and accelerated economic growth, among other major trends.

Managing change is an essential component of an organisation’s success and indeed, continued survival. Companies must continually innovate and evolve to ensure that they remain relevant and to maintain and expand their market share.  Fundamentally, continual change is essential to boosting organisational performance.

There are powerful forces acting to change the political, economic, social, and market conditions in which organisations operate. At the same time, in many organisations, there are strong internal and structural resistances to change. Indeed, resistance to change can result in weakening employee morale and productivity, as well as the organisation becoming increasingly irrelevant in the marketplace in which it operates.

Overcoming resistance to change requires effective leadership and buy-in from both employees and other stakeholders. Achieving employee buy-in requires inspirational and powerful leadership. Effective leadership can enable organisations to foster creativity and innovation and continually anticipate and respond to change.

In order to improve the capacity of senior executives to manage change, TEXEM and Manchester Business School have collaborated in order to develop a bespoke executive education programme focused on change management. The three-day programme will be held at Manchester Business School, UK, between 3rd and 5thSeptember 2014. The programme cost of £2,900 includes all tuition and certification, visa support, accommodation and all meals. Delegates will also join Manchester Business School’s extensive alumni network.

Delivered by top academics and thought leaders, the programme will enable participants to overcome structural and organisational obstacles in order to promote change and boost organisational performance. The executive education programme is specifically tailored for African executives, ensuring it meets the precise needs of participants.

Executives responsible for change management will develop enhanced insight into the process of change through the latest research, academic thinking and discussions of real-world case studies. Delegates will learn exactly how to apply what they have learnt in the programme to their organisations, ensuring that they will be able to add immense value.

According to Alim Abubakre, CEO, TEXEM, “The programme has been designed to empower executives to respond to organisational challenges. It also aims to develop the skill-sets that senior executives need to excel in their dynamic operating environments. Executives who participate in the programme ‘Strategies for Results Driven Change Management’ will acquire the skills and competencies to boost organisational performance by anticipating and responding to change”.

Dr Nicholas Clifford, Academic Director, Manchester Business School said: “Many techniques have been developed to assist managers to achieve outstanding results, however, the real skill is in knowing how to apply these techniques.  This can only come from those who can both manage and lead their staff towards such results.  At Manchester we place as much weight on leadership as we do on management because both are essential to achieve real and lasting organisational change.”

TEXEM is an innovative service-based organisation that provides learning platforms for business professionals. Manchester Business School is one of the top business schools in the UK and the world, with triple accreditation from the AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS.
